And if you are still a little skeptical about the power of memes to help build your business, you have to look no further than the amazing success story of Gary V.
This is Gary.
This man right here is a master of using memes to harness the power of marketing. Gary Vaynerchuk is better known as Gary V, likely because he knows that people on the internet don't like to read and might not bother reading a slightly more difficult-than-average last name.
In 2020, he has over 12 million combined followers across social media platforms. How did he do it? Hard work....and memes.

Gary V often dominates the internet on marketing advice. Looking for something on how to reach millennials on Facebook? Where the future of Instagram is headed? How to target baby boomers? Gary V has got it, and he's done it, and he's done it well. It's a no brainer that he knows the importance of meme marketing.
Also king of making inspirational quotes, Gary V himself recognized how perfect his brand was for fitting right into meme format. Where before his zingers might have been simply written in text form or been confined to a single video, memes allow for the combination of the two mediums.
"Whether it’s drawing in caves, smoke signals, the written word, music, or emojis, people for as long as we have lived have judged and underestimated new languages," says Gary V. "I, on the other hand, think it’s important to lean into it. It’s why I’m a huge advocate of memes as a language."

Gary V took his image, and wasn't afraid to transform it into exactly what was popular on the internet. A serious brand that's still taken seriously, he was able to use silly images to keep himself (and his company) relevant with the times.
While his inspirational content is still relevant, and shareable...
...memes are able to make him relatable, one of the crucial elements of meme marketing.
For example, imagine just reading this quote on its own:
"It's not about how much you sleep, it's about what you do when you're awake."
Okay, that's pretty good. Maybe it will make you work harder...maybe. Now take a look at the exact same quote in a different form...a memed form:
The message is even more shareable, more relatable, thus hitting harder. It has a different twist. It's funny, and it still carries power. Memes can retell the story of a brand in many different ways. Don't be scared to use them for your marketing needs.
Memes. Those little pictures you spend all day sending to your friends and family actually might have a bigger impact than you think, especially when it comes to business.

So, as Gary V has proven, when it comes to brand awareness and brand building, memes are the next level of marketing. The impact it has on customers and its ability to communicate a direct message quickly and effectively really know no bounds. And it's even easier to bring your business into this new meme world than ever before!
